You donít really need the app because I already gave you the settings, but if you want the app itís here:
http://www.headsoft.com.au/index.php?category=mame&page=joymap

I didnít make the app.

You just need to create an ini file (a text file), put the text I posted in it, save it to the location I told you, and name it the name of the rom you want to digitally restrict.

I have ini files for all the games I want to digitally restrict. It makes Tron very playable with an analog flight stick, the 4-way games are tight, and q-Bert is very playable. I pair this with my Ultimarc U360 joystick. Unto this, I attached an Ultimarc Servostick. I use the Hyperspin front end with LEDBlinky.

Whenever I launch a game, it is detected as to whether itís a 4-way or whatever, the restrictive plate automatically rotates to mechanically restrict the joysticks movement and with the help of the ini files I generated with the MameJoyMap app, itís also digitally restricted. That makes the controls very tight.

Anyone who says q-Bert controls canít be emulated isnít using this method.
